FIM 2010 is still being cooked in Redmond area but in the meantime we got brand new ILM 2007 Service Pack 1 package which just was published on Downloads web site. ILM 2007 SP1 is cumulative hotfix package but also it brings support for provisioning objects with Exchange 2010.
This is nice progress if you remember how long we had to wait for Exchange 2007 to be supported with ILM … way to go for future ILM team.
Information how to use ILM AD MA to provision objects to Exchange 2010 is published on Technet in Deploy Exchange 2010 in a Cross-Forest Topology article.
Whit Exchange 2010 support we also are getting a new code example and description “Prepare for Online Mailbox Move”. Quote from download description:
Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 supports online mailbox migration from a remote Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2007, or Exchange Server 2003 forest to your Exchange 2010 forest. Prior to performing the online mailbox migration, mail-enabled users with a predefined list of attributes must be present in the target Exchange 2010 forest where the mailbox will be moved to. You can use either the sample code or the sample script to help with your online mailbox migration:
- The ILM-based rules extension sample code demonstrates how to customize your current ILM deployment to create the required mail-enabled users in the target Exchange 2010 forest. For more information, see Prepare Mailboxes for Cross-Forest Moves Using the PrepareMoveRequest.ps1 script in the Shell. To download the feature pack, see Microsoft Knowledge Base article 977791 (Service Pack 1 (build 3.3.1139.2) is available for Microsoft Identity Lifecycle Manager (ILM) 2007 Feature Pack 1) .
- The remote PowerShell-based sample script demonstrates how to run a PowerShell script to create the required mail-enabled users in the target Exchange 2010 forest. For more information, see Prepare Mailboxes for Cross-Forest Moves Using Sample Code.
